April has been a trying month in many ways, but in others it was fabulous. I got to see my mum for the first time in 4 months, which of course was lovely, and we spent Easter weekend at Seahouses, Northumberland. She and I visited Alnwick Castle, where some of Harry Potter was filmed, and also one of my favourite bookshops, Barter Books, also in Alnwick.
My number one favourite thing of the month has to be my new Tommy Hilfiger Cotton Twill Trench Coat in ‘Natural’. I went for a night out in London and my friend was wearing her beautiful Burberry trench, and I was so so jealous. When I got home I had a quick Google to see if that’s something I could ever save up for, and quickly realised that yes I could, but it’s a case of saving for a Burberry or saving for a mortgage.
So, in looking for cheaper dupes, I found this Hilfiger Denim one. I love it: I’ve been wearing it everyday, and I keep getting compliments on it (no one ever compliments me on my clothes). At £150.00 it’s definitely on the more expensive side, but as opposed to £3000 for a Burberry, I’m happy with that. If I’m going to spend a lot of money on one item, I want it to be something I can wear forever, and a neutral trench is timeless. And really, £150 is not that bad considering it’s an investment.
